Businesses can claim up to £20,000 when replacing their heavier vans and lorries for electric vehicles.
N2 (3.5 to 12 tonnes) and N3 category vans (over 12 tonnes) meeting eligible criteria are now eligible.
The scheme will be reviewed once 5,000 grants have proceeded or in March 2018 whichever comes first.
The OLEV (Office for Low Emission Vehicles) a joint unit of the DfT and the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy believes that the extension will stimulate demand for electric vans and lorries.
